We lost our little Notty last night. When I went down to feed last night I could tell something was up. He was doing a lot of standing in the corner and panting heavily. I gave him a dose of Banamine for the pain and a drench of ammonium chloride in case of stones. He was wet around his boy parts so I knew something was getting out. Doped up on Banamine he settled down and was looking comfortable when I went to bed with every intention of calling the vet this morning. But this morning when I went to check he was dead. I have no idea what happened.
Notty was only 2 years old and was starting to fill out into a beautiful boy. I was just looking at him and thinking, Wow, he's turned out to be a nice looking buck. He came to me wild as a hawk and left this world as tame as a kitten.
He will be missed.
